Mixed Media Assemblage Art

So I buy some  artist's canvas and stick them in a drawer in my studio.  I have been researching mosaic and read about a lady who does mosaic on canvas, and it looks pretty cool.  I'll have to try this out one day...when I have some extra time.  Ssshhhyyaaa!  So now, a couple years later, I pull a 5" x 7" canvas out of the drawer and go to work .  The result is far from the traditional mosaic I had originally intended, but I figure that's artistic liscense.  Which means I can do whatever I want!

Have I mentioned that I'm all about color and texture?!
I'm not sure that I've ever seen anything quite like it...not really mosaic, not really collage...I'll have to go with mixed media wall art.

I used too many things to list, from polymaer clay tiles I made years ago, to buttons and beads and agates and sea shells and on and on!

It's also quite dimensional, which I find very appealing.


Thanks for stopping by!
Let me know what you think...

Here's where you can check a couple of my traditional mosaic projects..
